The 2000s were an interesting time for horror cinema, particularly the slasher genre. While the franchise dominated the late 70s and 80s thanks to characters like Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Leatherface, the genre never quite recaptured those heights ever again. While the 1990s saw the genre slightly rebound with Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 2000s were the decade in which it seemed like the slasher was a dying trend.
